“The mystery of the seven stars”

The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand,  and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.“ <Rev 1:20>

 Revelation 1:20, which is the prophesy of the mystery shown to Apostle John, explains that “seven” and “stars” symbolize seven Spirits and crowns of 12 stars (Rev 12:1), respectively.

 The key to unlock “the mystery of 7 stars” lies in separating and understanding the meanings of the number 7 and stars in “7 stars”.

Looking at “seven” and “stars” separately, “seven” represents God’s seven Spirits that act as seven eyes of Jesus (Zec 4:10/Rev 5:6/Rev 4:5), and “stars” symbolizes people who lead many to righteousness as prophesied in Daniel, which refers to the crown of 12 stars (Dan 12:1-3/Rev 12:1). Thus, “the mystery of 7 stars” predicts the start of the open revelation as well as the appearance of the numbered new mankind symbolized by the crown of 12 stars, which refers to the new network of Jesus’ 12 disciples who are the brides of Jesus. (Rev 21:9-10/Rev 21:16-17).

 “The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of  Israel. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.                       He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.”               <Ps 147:2-4>

It symbolizes that the new mankind who are the seven stars to which the seven Spirits of God work, “the servants” of God in Revelation 1:1 who are the brides of Jesus and the recipients of of Revelation, become the messengers of Jesus being sent to each church and witness the words of Holy Spirit with the Guardian Angel.(Rev 22:16/2Co 8:23-24)

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”      (Rev 2:7) (Rev 2:11) (Rev 2:17) (Rev 2:29) (Rev 3:6) (Rev 3:13) (Rev 3:22)

Also, many people will come back to the right path (Isa 30:20-22) by providing light of Jesus’ revealing word to the world churches darkened by invasion of Satan. (2 Co 8:23/ Mt 18:10/Rev 22:16)

Here, the seven golden candlesticks symbolizes, as seven candlesticks are lighted by the same olive oil, that Jesus works in each of the churches with the identical words of revelation.(2 Pe 3:7)

This “the mystery of the seven stars” is the starting summary of the entire Revelation of 22 chapters as well as the essence of Revelation chapter 1, and is the first mysteries in Revelation.

The above expressions of Rev 1:20 is organized in a table as follows.

 Summary

“Through appearance of people with seven Spirits (Zec 4:10/Rev 5:6),
who lead many to righteousness as prophesied in Daniel (Da 12:1-3),              the mystery of the seven stars symbolizes the fulfillment of the prophecy, which they become the messengers of Jesus and serve as the lamp that brightens the darkened churches of this world, with the identical words of prophecy of Jesus.”

Description of Rev 1:20 Contents Symbolized
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest Appearance of people with seven Spirits, who lead many to righteousness as prophesied in Daniel(Dan 12:1-3), which refers to the crown of 12 stars (Rev 12:1).
in my right hand, in God’s righteousness.(Isa 41:9-10)
and the seven golden candlesticks. light by the same olive oil” symbolize the identical words of prophesy of Jesus
The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: The seven stars become the messengers of Jesus being sent to each church and witness the words of Holy Spirit with the Guardian Angel.
and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. Here, the seven golden candlesticks symbolizes, as seven candlesticks are lighted by the same olive oil, that Jesus works in each of the churches with the identical words of revelation.
In the time of trials that come upon the whole world (Rev 3:10), “the mystery of 7 stars” shows and lets us know about the mysteries through the one who reads, the first messenger of Jesus in the revelation times. And those who keep the words of this prophecy, the brides of Jesus written in the book of life, will become the messengers of Jesus with the Guardian Angel, and serve as the lamp that brightens the churches of this world, with the identical words of prophecy.(Rev 1:3/Am 3:7).

Also, they together begin as the messengers of Jesus with partnering disciples and then become new readers who read along with the mentor who reads the same words of prophecy through online or off line.

When Jesus came to the earth for the first time as the son of man, Peter, James and John who were the foremost disciples were all networkers using fishing nets, but in the end times, the networkers of God with the use of the Internet are urgently needed.

To be a reader as the bride of Jesus at once, all you have to do is putting God as the priority in your life.(Mt 4:18-22)

Therefore, those who hear this important matter must not ignore or distort the real meaning of the identical revelation of Jesus.

Also, the theory of singular subject (the one who reads) → plural subjects (those who hear) → select few (those who take into heart) is the basic concept of the repeated revelation evangelism in which “the servants” of God who grow through active evangelism of the Gospel continue to be born.

 “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” <Rev 1:3>

 It’s really important in the end times to understand that your salvation depends on believing in Jesus and the fruit of your lips giving thanks to Jesus’ grace through which will raise you from the dead to the eternal life.

<Heb 13:15-17>                                                                                                                                   15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.                                                                                                  16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.                                                                                                                                              17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

<2 Ti 2:2-6>                                                                                                                                             2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.                                                           3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.                                         4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.                                                                                           5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.       6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

Also, if there are any changes of your life with Jesus’ grace in the process of reading and uploading through SNS (Social Network Service) etc., you can share the experiences together as your testimony of faith.

 Thus, a new age begins in which a mere believer becomes the messenger of Jesus with the identical words of prophecy at the same time as well as the bride of Jesus, who is chosen by Jesus in the end times.

 “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, these are the true sayings of God.”    <Rev 19:9>

 Now, the prophecy of “the mystery of 7 stars” comes true through the appearance of the numbered new mankind symbolized by 7 stars, which refers to the network of Jesus’ brides (Rev 21:9-10) as well as the start of becoming the messengers of Jesus with reading of identical words of prophecy. (Ps 147:2-4/Rev 21:16-17)

 If you are a church leader already, you can organize special groups for those who have sincere hope and desire to become the brides of Jesus in the church and the process is all the same. Also, they gather together those who will be members of the church as well as the brides of Jesus.

As a church leader, all you need is activating them to put God as the priority in their life to become the messenger of Jesus with the identical words of prophecy at the same time as well as the bride of Jesus and making together 12 new readers who are the brides of Jesus like Jesus within 3 years

 When the seven Spirits work, the spiritual view will be opened and the directions and priorities in life will become God-centered. The things to throw away will be thrown away and the things to be adjusted will be adjusted and the things to keep will be wholly kept.

 Here, though the seven Spirits are the work of the same one Holy Spirit that has appeared repeatedly several times in Revelation chapters 1-5, they especially symbolize the seven divine natures representing the complex activities of the Holy Spirit’s seven spiritualities, which are 1)the Spirit of the Lord, 2)the Spirit of wisdom and 3)of understanding, 4)the Spirit of counsel and 5)of power, 6)the Spirit of knowledge and 7)of the fear of the Lord(Isa 11:1-2) as the nickname in the end times of the Holy Spirit that serves as the seven eyes of Jesus, opens the spiritual view with Jesus’ perspectives.(2 Ki 2:9/Eph 4:4)

<Isa 11:1-2>                                                                                                                                            1.And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:                                                                                                                                                   2. And1) the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, 2)the spirit of wisdom and 3)understanding, 4)the spirit of counsel and 5)might, 6)the spirit of knowledge and 7)of the fear of the LORD;

<Isa 30:26>
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

<Jn 14:12>                                                                                                                                              12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

<Rev 3:12>                                                                                                                                             12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

It is now time for the believers, who have been sealed by the Trinity God with the same words worked by seven Spirits, to follow only Jesus and fulfill the calling of making God joyful, as members of God’s network that transcends denominations, in the name of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit and the new Jerusalem.

Therefore, as brides of Jesus (Rev 21:9/Isa 5:26) who follow the heart (Php 2:5) and appearance of Jesus Christ (Gal 4:19), they are the ones who open their spiritual vision (Rev 5:6), listen to the identical words of revelation of Jesus Christ, and achieve the law of Christ by taking burdens of one another (Gal 6:2). Participating in the divine nature of God (2 Pe 1:4), which is the final step of His plan of creating new mankind, they are the sons of God who add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love (2 Pe 1:7). Also, they are believers who work together to achieve goodness(Ro 8:28) and join in the first resurrection and eternal life.(Rev 21:7/ Ro 9-25:28/Mt 5:3-12)
